Believe it or not, the primary reason why grooming a dog is so important is because the cleanliness of a dog influences the way he feels. Have you ever noticed that when a dog comes home from the groomer they have a little strut in their step? Its because they feel good!
When a dog is groomed regularly it helps ensure the dog is healthy and comfortable. There are different stages in the grooming process and they will vary depending on the breed and individual needs of your dog. Different dog breeds require different care depending on the coat type, but usually dogs will be bathed, dried, brushed and trimmed. Ears will also be cleaned out, preventing infection and nails will be clipped, preventing limping and/or infection. Grooming also removes dirt, dead undercoat, and parasites promoting healthy coat growth.
